Behind the Mission: LGBT+ and the World Bank Group

Follow the event on Twitter #BehindTheMissionWBG

As a global organization that has embraced the twin goals of ending extreme poverty and boosting shared prosperity, the World Bank Group is committed to fostering and strengthening diversity and inclusion in both its work and workplace. We are committed to a workplace where everyone is valued, where differences are respected and celebrated, and where opportunity and equitable treatment is afforded to all. 

For our next episode of Behind the Mission: Working at the World Bank Group, which is on the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (IDAHOT), we delve into LGBT+ issues at the World Bank Group. How has the diversity and inclusion agenda improved over the years? How does our institution ensure that LGBT+ rights are protected and LGBT+ staff are empowered and nurtured? Why should LGBT+ community consider a career in international development, especially at the WBG? Join the discussion with three staff members, who will share their insights and experiences about how the World Bank Group is ensuring that LGBT+ staff are fairly represented and that their rights remain top of mind. 

ABOUT Behind the Mission: Working at the World Bank Group: Who are we? Where do we work? What do we do? Why join us? And, what’s it really like to work at the World Bank Group?

Hi - wonderful panel and discussion! Could the panel say a bit about how the WBG applies health benefits, pension et al to partners (particularly for those working in country offices) How would a partner qualify for these benefits, for example?
